under san francisco's][e&- official misconduct law. at least if the official has limited experience playing the six degrees of kevin bacon does the mayor say any and all misconduct will result in someone being put on probation, even purely personal conduct totally unrelated to the performance of any of the official's actual duties? if so are ethics commissioners studley and han saying anything different from what commissioner rene said. is their new relationship requirements so diluted that it amounts to no requirements at all, exactly what mr. rene suggested. and if that is correct, does it not follow that all four commissioners are interpreting san francisco's official misconduct statute in a way that leaves it completely unconstitutionally vague. by making up rules of misconduct proceedings against ross as they went along, the ethics commission appears to have vield the city charter themselves by chersing an authority not;%.f-3 granted by the charter. they do not have my authority to take away my vote. reinstate -state wúw wj4(p&c"p% >> president chiu: thank you very much. next

office, as the sheriff of the city and county%fr of san francisco. and that simply shows a continuing failurez/[. to underd the issue of domestic violence, to]@j understand the pivotal importance that this city's response to hisejáq domestic violence as sheriff carries. watching. and i think many are probably astounded by the notion that our normally progressive jurisdiction, our jurisdiction that usually reaches out to protect the victims, to protect the powerless are considering allowing a sheriff, and entertaining the notion that domestic violence does not relate to the duties of a chief law enforcement officer. it's important, i think, to remember that this misconduct is very significant. it is not just a mistake. it's not a mistake on december 31st. it's a crime. and it's a serious crime, with a serious sentence. >> president chiu: continue please. thank you. >> and the sheriff's -- that domestic violence doesn't matter when it's committed by a sheriff. he wants you to believe that the voters would have you remove a sheriff if he commits petty theft of office supplies, but not i

unfortunately we have more of in san francisco, while we look at these small amount of shadow changes, they're conjectural because we don't know how many days are going to be sunny and how many aren't, and when those will fall at the times we're seeing these small shadows so the impact is going to be less than we've seen today, the sun is always not a factor. another question i had and there was brief discussion of the situation with 706 mission and maybe josh can answer my question, but that's not before us today, of course, but i appreciate and we had asked this at an earlier hearing that we did where possible analyze impacts of buildings outside of the plan area which that is clearly outside of the plan area, what our action today does nothing to increase the shadow allowance for that particular project, which i understand, maybe i'm reading it wrong, but you are asking for a 0.19 increase for union square, however, we did comment that the increase if we were to include the 706 mission would be 0.2%, the 706 mission from what i'm reading from your report only increases the shadow to unio

likelihood have downtown extension for high speed rail in san francisco, just to be very clear, no district plan, no downtown extension, which has been a priority of this city for almost 50 years. as one of san francisco's representatives on the metropolitan transportation commission, along with supervisor campos, i was proud to represent san francisco in the historic votes taken at our renal planning organization several months ago to unanimously pass the california high speed rail mou, that will soon bring us electrified cal train as well as a regional transportation plan that prioritizes this region's major fair of transportation for the extension of cal train dtx, and i just want to reiterate that this was not a foregone conclusion, downtown extension was not necessarily a priority for the entire region and we as a city worked very, very hard to bring the other commissioners from around the bay area on board to support not just electrified cal train but to make clear that downtown san jose to downtown san francisco was one unified project and they have come on board and have committed f
